Cranberry Oat Yummies

I like to think these oatmeal treats are better for you than the standard chocolate chip cookie. Our three sons just can't get enough of them. And they have no idea I've make the cookies healthier. —Carol Birkemeier of Nashville, Indiana

    Love these, just the right amount of crunchy and sweet. The dried cranberries are an extra special treat! This will be added to my Christmas cookie list.

    I tend to be a meat and potatoes type of chef but when I saw this recipe I had to try it. They turned out absolutely delicious to the point that I tripled the recipe and made a bunch to share at work!

    Out of the 8 reviews, no one has actually said they made the cookies and how they turned out. I thought the purpose of rating a recipe was to help others to determine if they would make the recipe, how it turned out and any tips or comments if the recipe was a flop. Please stick to the topic of rating the recipe instead of writing about the sugar content. Go on the internet, I am sure there is a something on there that would aid in finding out the sugar content of a recipe. Gee can't get a good review lately.

    Answering Kathyhh's question about the egg substitute. 1/4 cup of egg substitute is one whole egg. So add two eggs into the recipe.

    substituting Splenda for the sugar would bring the calories & carbs down even more.roscoe56

    I, too, have previously requested the addition of sugar content for you recipes. My physician's diet plan for me monitors both fat and sugar content, so those are the two important categories I look for when considering new foods. Thanks!

    We watch our sugar intake also - please add sugar to the list for nutritional content. Thanks!

    I second the request for sugar content. That is the first thing I look for. ShirleyR
